6 nights in Morocco - how long to spend in marrakech and fes each?

Jump to last reply

Hello, I am planning a 3 week trip (2 wks spain, 1 week morocco) for May 2014. I plan to spend a week in morocco.
The first night we will take the overnight train from Tangiers to Marrakech, and we will use up another night taking a night train from M'kech to Fes.

My question to those who have traveled there is:
should we do 3 nights in M'kech and 2 nights Fes, or 2 nights M'kech and 3 nights Fes.

A little bit about us as travelers:
We travel for food, (although I expect some challenges as a vegetarian), historical sites (wandering independently, we do not do structured tours) and general low-key exploration of cities. We are more into cities than countrysides.
We typically stay in mid-range hotels. I am less comfortable with roughing it and seedy-underbelly type places, my husband likes seeing all sides -- good and bad of the places we go.
We are a married couple (30 yrs old) from Canada. My husband speaks french.

thanks so much!
